The raven’s last dance is one of seduction
for she’s been betrayed by his shape-shift call,
the one that sung out in solitude, plotting her fall.
This was the moment of her demise –
the one where he sees his manipulative schemes
shaped before him in a heart wrenching scene –
the one where he finally breaks her fall and answers her cries.
She believes in his tales of twisted truths,
the ones that tell her she’s a master
and that she’s got nothing to lose.
She falls at his stride
and he catches her for the last time,
she has completely succumb
to his wicked rhythm and rhyme.
